Medina Journal-Register — MEDINA — Working hard and helping others highlight the accomplishments of September’s students of the month.
The Medina Teacher’s Association and Medina Business Association have continued their partnership this year to honor the great achievements of the students of the Medina Central School District. The teachers of the students have nominated them for their accomplishments early in this school year and the business association selected a student from each school’s nominations.
The students selected for the month of September are Joshua Hilobuk of Oak Orchard Elementary School, Alyssa Beyer of Wise Intermediate/Middle School, and Ian Winter of Medina High School.
Second Grade Teacher Kris Colonna nominated Hilobuk for the great first impression he has made this school year.
“He has perseverance” says Mrs. Colonna. “He tries hard and is determined to master everything he is taught. He is a true example of the Mustang Mission. He shows respect, is responsible, honest, and kind.”
Mrs. Colonna also adds that it is great to see Joshua come to school every day with a smile.
Seventh-grader Alyssa Beyer was nominated by her Social Studies Teacher, Jennifer Ossont. Alyssa was selected as the Wise Intermediate/Middle School Student of the Month for being a model student. She always comes prepared to class and volunteers to participate. Above all Alyssa was nominated for her willingness to help others.
Mrs. Ossont said of Alyssa, “she willingly works with any and all students and she has a great positive attitude.”
High School French Teacher Julie Webber recommended Freshman Ian Winter for student of the month honors. Early in the school year Mrs. Webber was impressed when Ian stepped up to help a foreign exchange student.
“Ian is a solid student with good grades and great attendance. He is a friendly and mature student who is cooperative with all of his classmates. Above all he has voluntarily taken the exchange student ‘under his wing’,” says Mrs. Webber.
The partnership between the Medina Teachers Association and the Medina Business Association will continue throughout the school year. Medina Teachers Association President Joseph Byrne praised the work of this joint effort.
“Our Student of the Month Program is a great way to honor students doing good things in school and out in the community,” Byrne said.
